History

In December 2013 Matt Kempke met with the nice guys from Slash Games, Nick and Christian, to talk about his idea for a funny mobile game. As Matt was enthusiastic about the game and especially its main character FreudBot, a brilliant, but crazy robotic psychoanalyst, so were Nick and Christian. Together with Buddelfisch, a comic studio, and Corinna Ertl, a 2D artist and animator, Slash Games started to work on the game from January 2014 on. In just about seven months a beautiful and funny 2D cartoon action card game was developed which let's you experience the adventures of Steve and FreudBot. You will come across many strange characters and there may be some story twists you might not see coming!

Features

  • Help STEVE to survive 46 comic levels, facing strange mothers, complicated girlfriends, dangerous youths, aggressive bosses and … his own FEAR!
  • Let the wonderful and unique FREUDBOT, robotic psychoanalyst, teach you to defend yourself against over 100 bad vibes of everyday life!
  • Beat fear, doubt and aggression by mastering over 30 of FreudBot’s good vibes!
  • Unleash the power of ID, EGO and SUPER-EGO, and finally the infamous FreudBot ULTRA-EGO!
